“Me & a Gun”—A Capella No More!

After fleeing her late-’80s synth-pop group Y Kant Tori Read, Tori Amos kicked off her solo career in 1991 with “Me and a Gun,” the a capella track dealing with her survival of a rape at knifepoint.

Since then, Amos has become the crazy star at the center of her own crazy universe, and I hardly follow her shenanigans anymore. But as the Tori-loving Pink is the New Blog reports, Ms. Amos is spicing up her new tour by performing her hallowed rape anthem with a full band, in the character of her American Doll Posse alter-ego Pip, and employing disturbing props. (See photo above, shot by Bullocks Troy.)

And to see video of Tori—uh, Pip—performing the full-band, propped-up “M&AG” live in Chicago, go here.
